A brief introduction to Tabligh Jamaâat and their objectives
(TABLIGHI JAMAAT KA MUKHTASAR TAARUF)
Tabligh literally means âto conveyâ. Contextually, it refers to conveying the message of Islam. This is the sunnah of all the prophets. The most important rule of tabligh is hikmah. Allah Taâala says in the Holy Quran:
Ø§Ø¯Ø¹ Ø¥ÙÙ Ø³Ø¨ÙÙ Ø±Ø¨Ù Ø¨Ø§ÙØÙÙØ© ÙØ§ÙÙÙØ¹Ø¸Ø© Ø§ÙØØ³ÙØ©
Invite (people) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good counsel. (Verse: 16:125)
Whosoever does tabligh must adopt hikmah. It is only then, that people will understand and accept.
Tablighi Jamaat is not a jamaat/group Rather it is a movement that saw a gradual evolution starting from 1920-27.
Proof from Quran and Hadith For The Work of Tabligh
The work of tabligh âhas strong basis in Quran and sunnahâ. There are numerous verses of the Quran and the Ahadith of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that support the practice of tabligh. Hereunder are a few of them:
From the Holy Quran:
Ø§Ø¯Ø¹ Ø¥ÙÙ Ø³Ø¨ÙÙ Ø±Ø¨Ù Ø¨Ø§ÙØÙÙØ© ÙØ§ÙÙÙØ¹Ø¸Ø© Ø§ÙØØ³ÙØ©
Invite (people) to the way of your lord with wisdom and good counsel. (Verse: 16:125)

And there has to be a group of people from among you who call towards good and prevent from evil. (Verse: 3:104)

And who is better in utterance than the one who called people towards Allah, and acts righteously and says, âI am one of those who submit themselves (to Allah Taâala). (Verse: 41:33)
From the Ahadith of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam):
ÙÙØ§Ù Ø£Ø¨Ù Ø³Ø¹ÙØ¯ Ø£ÙØ§ ÙØ°Ø§ ÙÙØ¯ ÙØ¶Ù ÙØ§ Ø¹ÙÙÙ Ø³ÙØ¹Øª Ø±Ø³ÙÙ Ø§ÙÙÙ ØµÙÙ Ø§ÙÙÙ Ø¹ÙÙÙ ÙØ³ÙÙ ÙÙÙÙ ÙÙ Ø±Ø£Ù ÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙØ±Ø§ ÙÙÙØºÙØ±Ù Ø¨ÙØ¯Ù ÙØ¥Ù ÙÙ ÙØ³ØªØ·Ø¹ ÙØ¨ÙØ³Ø§ÙÙ ÙØ¥Ù ÙÙ ÙØ³ØªØ·Ø¹ ÙØ¨ÙÙØ¨Ù ÙØ°ÙÙ Ø£Ø¶Ø¹Ù Ø§ÙØ¥ÙÙØ§Ù
Hazrat Abu Saâeed (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that he heard Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying, âWhosoever witnesses a forbidden act being committed, he should prevent it by the use of his hands; if he is unable to do so, then he should prevent it with his tongue; if he is unable to do so, he should at least consider it a vice in his heart; and this is a very low level of Imanâ.

It has been reported on the authority of Nuâman bin Bashir (Radhiyallahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, âThere are people who do not transgress the limits (laws) of Allah Taâala, and there are others who do so. They are like two groups who boarded a ship; one of them settled on the upper deck, and the other on the lower deck of the ship. When the people of the lower deck needed water, they said, âWhy should we cause trouble to the people of the upper deck when we can have plenty of water by making a hole in our deckâ. Now, if the people of the upper deck do not prevent this group from such foolishness, all of them will perish; but if they stop them, they will be savedâ.
(Sahih Al Bukhari Vol.3 Pg.152 - Darul fikr)
OBJECTIVE OF TABLIGHI JAMAAT
Their objective is that each and every Muslim adopts the Islamic way in all aspects of life. They do not advice anyone to leave all their daily activities and join this work, but they encourage people to take out some time from their daily engagements so that the rest of the time could be spent in accordance to the teachings of Islam. Spending time in the path of Allah is not the objective of the work, but rather it acts as a motivation to practice on all other aspects of Deen.
Their call is based on Quran and Ahadith and always guided by Pious Ulema and Muftiyan Karam
Their call is for complete deen and they say to people:
Our success in this life and the life hereafter is in obeying the commandments of Allah (SWT) and in following the noble ways (Sunnah) of Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam)
There is ABUNDANT EVIDENT from the Qurâaan in their call as Allah (SWT) has said:
ÙÙØ£ÙØ·ÙÙØ¹ÙÙØ§Ù Ù±ÙÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙ±ÙØ±ÙÙØ³ÙÙÙÙ ÙÙØ¹ÙÙÙÙÚªÙÙÛ¡ ØªÙØ±Û¡ØÙÙÙÙÙÙ
[3:132]Obey Allah and the Messenger, so that you may be blessed.
ÙÙÙÛ¡ Ø£ÙØ·ÙÙØ¹ÙÙØ§Ù Ù±ÙÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙ±ÙØ±ÙÙØ³ÙÙÙÙ*Û ÙÙØ¥ÙÙ ØªÙÙÙÙÙÙÙÛ¡Ø§Ù ÙÙØ¥ÙÙÙÙ Ù±ÙÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙØ§ ÙÙØÙØ¨ÙÙ Ù±ÙÛ¡ÙÙÙÙ°ÙÙØ±ÙÙÙÙ
[3:32] Say: .Obey Allah and the Messenger. Then, should they turn back, Allah does not love the disbelievers.
ÙÙØ¯Û¡ Ø£ÙÙÛ¡ÙÙØÙ Ù±ÙÛ¡ÙÙØ¤Û¡ÙÙÙÙÙÙÙ
[23:1]Success is really attained by the believers
ÙÙØ¹ÙØ¯Ù Ù±ÙÙÙÙÙÙ Ù±ÙÛ¡ÙÙØ¤Û¡ÙÙÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙ±ÙÛ¡ÙÙØ¤Û¡ÙÙÙÙÙÙ°ØªÙ Ø¬ÙÙÙÙÙÙ°ØªÙÛ¬ ØªÙØ¬Û¡Ø±ÙÙ ÙÙÙ ØªÙØÛ¡ØªÙÙÙØ§ Ù±ÙÛ¡Ø£ÙÙÛ¡ÙÙÙÙ°Ø±Ù Ø®ÙÙÙ°ÙÙØ¯ÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙÛÙØ§ ÙÙÙÙØ³ÙÙÙ°ÙÙÙÙ Ø·ÙÙÙÙØ¨ÙØ©ÙÛ¬ ÙÙÙ Ø¬ÙÙÙÙÙÙ°ØªÙ Ø¹ÙØ¯Û¡ÙÙÛ¬*Û ÙÙØ±ÙØ¶Û¡ÙÙÙ²ÙÙÛ¬ ÙÙÙÙÙ Ù±ÙÙÙÙÙÙ Ø£ÙÚªÛ¡Ø¨ÙØ±Ù*Û Ø°ÙÙ²ÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙÙ Ù±ÙÛ¡ÙÙÙÛ¡Ø²Ù Ù±ÙÛ¡Ø¹ÙØ¸ÙÙÙÙ
[9:72] Allah has promised to the believers, male and female, gardens beneath which rivers flow, where they shall live forever, and good homes in gardens of eternity. And Allahâs pleasure is above all. That is the supreme success.
Tabligh Remind people as
They remind our Muslim brothers and Sisters to change their life according to Qurâaan and Sunnah and we believe that our reminder also has evidence from the book of Allah (SWT):
ÙÙØ°ÙÙÙÙØ±Û¡ ÙÙØ¥ÙÙÙÙ Ù±ÙØ°ÙÙÙÛ¡Ø±ÙÙÙ° ØªÙÙÙÙØ¹Ù Ù±ÙÛ¡ÙÙØ¤Û¡ÙÙÙÙÙÙÙ
[51:55] And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.
How to actually change their life? We refer them to the Ulama (& people of knowledge) and we believe that we evidence for that from the book of Allah (SWT) as well:
ÙÙØ³Û¡ÙÙÙÙÙÙÙØ§Ù Ø£ÙÙÛ¡ÙÙ Ù±ÙØ°ÙÙÚªÛ¡Ø±Ù Ø¥ÙÙ ÙÙÙØªÙÙÛ¡ ÙÙØ§ ØªÙØ¹Û¡ÙÙÙÙÙÙÙ
[21:7]...So, ask the people (having the knowledge) of the Message, if you do not know...
SUMMARY OF Maulana Ilyas Idea of reformist Movement
Moulana Ilyas Saheb (Rahimahullah) observed that people were too engrossed in their worldly activities and had forgotten the objective for which they had been sent to this world. He realized that they had to free some time from their worldly engagements, to sit and ponder about Allah Taâala and their purpose for being sent to this world. Therefore, he started calling people to the masjid, and reminded them about Allah Taâala and His greatness. Initially people rebuked him, they discouraged him and used to say that they had no time for all of this; but as time went by, they realized the truth behind it and the need for it, and started joining him in calling others towards Allah Taâala. Thereafter, when more people started joining this work, a few guidelines had to be set, to make sure that the work was done in a proper manner. Different time periods of 3 days, 40 days, etc. were set, so that people knew for how long they had to be away, and could make the necessary arrangements for that period.
